Friday Afternoon Roundup - Weakness is the New Strength


WEAKNESS IS THE NEW STRENGTH

The progressive spin is that Putin’s invasion, as the Center for American Progress put it, is “an act of weakness, not strength — an act, as Kerry aptly characterized it, anachronistic in both moral and strategic terms… fundamentally mismatched to 21st century realities.”

In the upside down world of progressive soft power, invading another country is an act of weakness while being unable to do anything about it is an act of strength. Weakness is the new strength and strength is the new weakness.

Obama’s impotence makes him a world leader, while Putin’s potency makes him a 19th century relic.

The more Putin does, the more he shows that he’s another Sarah Palin or Mitt Romney, a déclassé bumpkin unfit for the modern 21st century realities of discussing foreign policy on Jay Leno and cracking wise about horses and bayonets.

SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS

Like ObamaCare, Obama’s massive budget proposal has all sorts of horrible things in it, but one of them is more horrible than the rest.

“That of the funds appropriated under title III of this Act, not less than $575,000,000 should be made available for family planning/reproductive health, including in areas where population growth threatens biodiversity or endangered species.”

It’s hard to misread this as anything except promoting birth control/abortion of humans to protect endangered species.

SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS II

According to local Aleutian elders, 19 people have died since 1980 as a result of the impossible-to-navigate weather conditions during emergency evacuations.

During an August visit to Alaska, Jewell was told that building a road that connects King Cove and Cold Bay was vital. But in December, Jewell rejected the road saying it would jeopardize waterfowl in the refuge.

STATE OF DECLINE

The Oscar campaign for 12 Years a Slave was kicked off with the slogan, "It's Time."

Time for what? Time to throw a politically correct bone in the right direction. And as always the bone was thrown.

12 Years a Slave had the smallest number of awards for a Best Picture winner since 2005's Crash, which scratched the same politically correct spot. That makes both movies completely unique in decades. But you probably don't remember Crash. Hollywood is lucky if you remember The Artist.

THREE LETTERS; KGB

Putin: Listen to me. Listen to me carefully. I want you to correctly understand me.

    If we reach that decision, only if we reach that decision, it will only be for the defense of Ukrainian citizens, let anyone from the military dare shoot at their own people which we will be behind, not in front but behind, let them try and shoot at women and children.

    Let me see who in the Ukraine will give such an order.

AMERICA HAS HER OWN PUTIN

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton presented Georgetown’s annual Hillary Rodham Clinton Awards for Advancing Women in Peace and Security.

Confusingly none of the three recipients of the Hillary Rodham Clinton Awards for Advancing Women in Peace and Security were women… but the presence of women would just distract from Hillary Clinton’s accomplishment as the only female leader in human history.

Hague responded to his award by delivering a speech praising Hillary’s non-existent accomplishments.

"Hillary, you enhanced the standing of US diplomacy in the world. You strengthened the State Department. You created new opportunities for your country, breaking fresh diplomatic ground in Asia and Africa. You are one of the world’s resolute champions of human rights, and in doing all these things and more you placed the United States in a stronger position for the 21st century."

A POSITIVE STEP FORWARD

Solomon Yahya was born in Yemen in 1915. He worked as a gardener for forty years in Israel. Even long after retirement he continued doing the work that he loved. A month before the Madrid Conference at which Israel was forced to negotiate with the PLO, he was stabbed to death in a public park.

He was 76 years old.

At the end of last year, Solomon’s murderer, Abu Mohsin Khaled Ibrahim Jamal, was freed by Israel as a “confidence-building” measure to bring Mahmoud Abbas, the leader of the Palestinian Authority, to the negotiating table.

The release of the murderers, negotiated by Kerry, was praised by a State Department spokeswoman as “a positive step forward.”

ULTRAMAN IS THE COOL ONE

A government representative confirmed the ban. In a statement on Friday, the Home Affairs Ministry said that because “Ultraman is idolized by many children,” equating the lead character, Ultraman King, with Allah would especially “confuse Muslim children and damage their faith.”

Ultraman’s superpowers include Ultra Punch (Urutora Panchi): This is a basic punch, but since Ultraman possesses super-humanoid physical strength, it “has the power of 50 Indian elephants.”

Allah’s superpowers include 72 Virgins: This tricks his followers into killing for him in the hope that they will receive 72 virgins.

If Bush or Romney had done this, it would be a laughable gaffe, but since the Smartest Man Alive who has visited all 57 states and speaks fluent Austrian did it, it was probably the mountain air, lack of sleep or the classic, “Shut up, you’re a racist for noticing.”

It’s a little known fact that the Village Voice has attacked every movie ever made upon its release as racist. The Village Voice’s review of The Lego Movie just consists of the word “Racism” repeated over and over again.

HILLARY 8

There’s something all too appropriate about a strategist for a bland and uninteresting presidential candidate whose only virtue is that she is the 800 lb gorilla in the room because of her name recognition…

…going to work for a bland and uninteresting company whose only virtue is being the 800 lb gorilla in the room because of its name recognition.

Hillary Clinton could be said to be the Microsoft of presidential candidates, boring, poorly designed, prone to crashes and desperately pretending to be cooler than she is.

POLITICS OF THE PARANOID
While toppling Putin would be harder than toppling Yanukovych, the USSR, which was a good deal tougher than Putin’s mafia state, was overthrown in part by popular protests.

Behind the staged photographs of a bare chested Putin hunting tigers or spearfishing for alligators is a narrow coterie of corrupt businessmen and an equally corrupt police state whose only interests in support the existing system are financial.

Putin isn’t just playing at empire, he’s also protecting his own back.

THE GLICK SOLUTION

Two state solution proponents have insisted rightly that the existing state of affairs cannot continue, but after two decades it is the two state solution that has become the state of affairs that cannot continue. The Israeli Solution advocates something that has never been tried before throughout this conflict; integration instead of segregation and unity instead of partition.

THE ROUNDUP



SOMEONE MUST PAY

The Left has already succeeded in producing a resentful generation in times of economic stagnation. A generation not taught to use its rational faculties in debate, but to get shocked and offended in the face of diverging opinions.

Despite “expertise” in class warfare and degrees in areas like gender and ethnic studies, this generation is not getting what it thinks it is “entitled” to. This generation is not taught to be objective and self critical, lest it be too hard on itself! So if these young people are not getting what they think they deserve. Then, it has to be the system’s fault.

THE EXPURGATION OF TEARS

I wondered how many tears Dimacali had shed for Ilan Halimi, the young French Jewish man in Paris who was kidnapped in 2006 by a group called the “Gang of Barbarians” and tortured horrifically over a period of three weeks, which finally ended in his tragic death. The gang members cut his fingers, ears, bits of his flesh; they burned him with acid and poured flammable liquid on him and set him on fire. Four-fifths of his body was mutilated by torture.

What were her emotions when she thought of how the gang forced Ilan’s mother to listen to her son’s tortured screams over the phone while they simultaneously recited Quranic verses to her?

What were Dimacali’s feelings when, at his trial, the leader of the gang, Youssouf Fofana, smirked at Ilan’s mom and relatives and shouted, “Allahu akbar”?

FIRES OF JIHAD

The fire of jihad, Holy War, must burn in the heart of every Muslim. It is a collective and personal duty; and every Muslim leader, particularly the head of the Muslim Empire, is obliged to pursue this duty ceaselessly. Legally therefore, the appellation of "The Land of War" to Europe is understandable. Every Christian coming from the Land of War - dar al harb- has the status of harbi. This is different from being a dhimmi, the status imposed on Christians and Jews tolerated to live under Islamic rule as a third-class subjects. The harbi is simply an alien, an enemy of Islam, even when no acts of war are in progress between the two sides. This legal outlook reflects the religious obligation to keep the Holy War alive.

Hi Daniel,
This'll be off topic, but I hope it has some resonance backstage.

Less than one week after Obama threatens Russia with economic sanctions, and only three days after China swears alliance with Russia, a Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 goes down over Chinese controlled waters. Shades of TWA Flight 800: we'll probably never know the real cause of this tragedy.

But, if history is any guide (and, if recent UAW/Democrat slander campaigns against Toyota products in America are any indication), we can be sure that Boeing's competitors and America's "trading partners" in Europe will employ the tragedy as a 'back-door' way of "sanctioning" America's economy.

Could this latest jet crash be the pretext for a renewed slander of Boeing with the aim being to 'goose' Airbus' sales, and the EU's bottom-line, by a resurgent Sino-Russian alliance?

I'll leave aside for now the fact that the Euro's enjoy complete deniability in this case (a trait that should trigger alarms in every American's head). But, additional context, like a month-old AP story about the 777's wing "cracks," add spice to the sauce. Furthermore, Russia and the EU are flirting with a larger alliance, and Europe is fearful of an American pivot towards Asia.

But, further supporting my fears, is the fact that Airbus, a collusive, pan European corporation dependent on EU corporatism and government favor for its sales, is Boeing's main competitor in Asian markets.

Added jolt comes from this: The international Left needs a galvanizing event that will change the game for it. They are still stinging from the stunning defeat for the UAW in a Carolina VW plant, America's Left's failure at enrolling American citizens in their nationalized medical schemes, and Boeing's expansion into "right-to-work" states. This highlights the traitors within, too, as, if we are to take De Blasio's election as an indication, there is a rabid, domestic constituency for busting Boeing's manufacturing and marketing strategy at home as well as abroad.

This latest loss of a Malaysia Airways Boeing 777 is mighty fishy. And, viewed within the context of Putin's threat that Obama's sanctions would "boomerang" back on American manufacturers, the deliberate explosion of one of America's main export company's products in a region located outside the domain of independent American crash inspectors is not just possible, it's down-right likely.

I am sick and tired of Kerry carrying on as if Putin has done something archaic and impolite, like farting out loud at a State dinner. He is starting to sound like Martha Stewart.
